Nina Hagen: Oh Lord, have mercy on us

Nina Hagen did her thing in Kaisafest in Helsinki last night. The pouring rain stopped before she took the stage in a huge tent and it all started off pretty nicely with her version of Depeche Mode's Personal Jesus and soon came also Atomic Flash deluxe and The Doors cover Riders in the storm.... then it was a very long wait for something that didn't have Jesus, God, Lord or similar in the text and that wasn't weird Jesus country folk music.  
My way got people wild in the end and we were expecting an encore part with some goodies but no. More acoustic Jesus country folk! People had been already shouting "No more Jesus" while waiting for the encore and when some more Jesus followed most people started heading another way and Nina's musical director kindly whispered her ear it's enough and took her off stage and it was over. Hallelujah I said! Oh jeez... 
I was happy to see Nina finally but ... Atomic flash deluxe and My way didn't made up for feeling like being in a religious fanatics fest with a mad preacher. In a symphatic way though. Nina is NIna so it's always fun to see her in action but... her Jesus is not my Jesus.

Boobs for summer: Samantha vs Sabrina!

The old rivals have put their bras (or the lack of them) in peace and entered the studios together to record Blondie's boombastic Call me . Life could be worse.....

Regina Lund - naked and censored

Regina Lund's new video Jag är osynlig was censored by Youtube only minutes after it had been uploaded. In the video she was playing a female Jesus who gets crusified in the end. "I was shocked!" she says. "There's nothing more naked in it as in every church! It's ok to have naked man hanging on the wall but my nakedness is too much on internet? ". Oh well, no comment. She's prepairing a new album Dare Regina Lund and we of course remember her from her Melodifestivalen 2007 adventure with Rainbow star .


Update! Another thing got Swedes talking last night: Carola's boobs when she was giving away an award. This is not the first time her boombs cause headlines; her misfortunate adventures in the 80's in Japan wer explained with her boobs being too big for Japanese market. Ok.... Or was it the song ? Anyways, Carola apologies and says she thinks the dress is stylish and elegant (even her friends said so) and she's a mature woman in her 40s, not a 16-year-old girl and looks like one. The Swedish Oscars, Guldbagge awards were given out last night. Carola was there as a guest star to sing Barbra Streisand's The way we were when honoring the movie stars who passed away during 2012. However, the cameras were too much on Carola, not on the stars showed in photos in the background and that upset many viewers as that part of the show was to celebrate them, not Carola. Oh well...  The producer of the show tells in Aftonbladet the part of the show was made the sam



Well, almost. The boys celebrated their 650.000th follower on Twitter by being photographed fresh from shower as promised. It's not the first time they drop their clothes as you see here . Meanwhile their second album is nearly here and the title track Young love is hitting the charts....


 Loreen. A legend for some. A one hit wonder for most. Since winning Eurovision song contest 2012 with Euphoria she has released seven singles. None of them has left the mark really. Her third attempt in Melodifestivalen this year with Statements ended up in a real defeat.  Now she's ready to finally release her second album Nude in August. The lead single is Body . It's... well, like her previous stuff. Okeyish to listen to when it's on but completely forgettable once it's finished.... Pretendious comes to mind. But then maybe I just don't get her. Maybe I never did. Her fans are surely euphoric. Maybe.  Listen in Spotify


Reigning Eurovision song contest champion and the host of the next contest in May 2016 in Stockholm Mäns Zelmerlöw bares it almost all in GT following some other Eurovision stars like Blue and Jedward ( see more here ) All for the good cause of course, prostate cancer - something this blogger can also relate having experienced it in my closest circle. Nothing to laugh about.  The annual Naked issue of GT or Gay Times features also several other celebrity men out of their designer fashion and stage or sports outfits. I guess Christmas came early to some fans when they can unwrap their most wished gift already now.... Maybe.  But it's not the first time he gets naked.... he did so when hosting the annual QX Gala some years ago. Who knows what he and Petra have in store for us in May?!


Krista Siegfrids is delivering nice pop tunes one after another and this one is particularly catchy and soon you will be singing along..... Hopefully her Melodifestivalen entry will be equally good!


Nina Zilli has been touring Italy all summer until mid September. Now she's apparently having a well deserved rest but at least on October 27, 2012 she will be performing for a little gig in TIM store in Rome, for more information read here . Recently she also posed for photographer Toni Thorimbert for these fantastic photos you see here showing a rockier Nina. You may want to click the name and see the others as well! Last but not least already in July her third single of the platinum selling album L'amore è femmina was released, the opening track Per le strade , that was also considered for Eurovision, apparently.
